Words of Wisdom

Words of Wisdom

Once upon a time, I collected words of wisdom that I had read in books, magazines, etc. I cut them out and pasted them into a notebook with the intention of reading them whenever I needed a little inspiration. Well, you know how these things go. Somewhere along the way, the notebook got stuck in a drawer and forgotten until I found it recently. As I paged through the notebook, I realized that these words of wisdom were not meant to be kept in a notebook, and should be shared so they could inspire others.

My life has changed since I first stuck those words of wisdom in the notebook and now I talk regularly to distressed sellers facing Michigan foreclosures. Many are courageously facing tremendous financial hardship and life situations and I am always impressed with people’s will to fight for their financial future & happiness. However, from talking to these homeowners, I know the fight can be lonely, confusing, overwhelming, stressful and even paralyzing as people facing foreclosure try to figure out who to believe and what to do to get back to better times. So, I share these words of wisdom with the hope they will strengthen you.
